    Temporary Non-Enforcement of Families First Coronavirus Response Act and Workplace Posting Requirements

    The Department of Labor will observe a temporary period of non-enforcement of the FFCRA until April 17, 2020, to allow employers to come into compliance with the new law.

    The Emergency Sick Leave and Expanded FMLA leave included in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) becomes effective on April 1, 2020.

    According to Christopher L. Nickels and James Y. Wu of Quarles & Brady LLP, “employers who are subject to the FFCRA should be working toward implementing and administering these leave benefits.”

    However, in “Temporary Non-Enforcement of Families First Coronavirus Response Act and Workplace Posting Requirements,” the authors also noted that the Department of Labor will observe a temporary period of non-enforcement of the FFCRA until April 17, 2020, to allow employers to come into compliance with the new law” and “published its model notice, which must be provided to all employees.”
